allen. pentagon officials say those e-mails may be inappropriate. the president and his defense chief sticking by allen whose nomination to lead nato forces is now on hold. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. general allen is doing an excellent job leading those forces. he has my continued confidence to lead our forces and continue the fight. but his nomination has been put on hold as a prudence measure until we determine what the facts are. and we will. martha: jill kelly who is being inundated with reporters at her tampa mansion, she even called 911 and asked for diplomatic protection. here is the 911 tape. >> i have a guy in my backyard and he's not leaving. if you can send somebody out. you know, by any chance, i'm an honorary counsel general. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well. it did get tense in a second call when kelley tells the dispatcher there is someone in her yard trying to get in the house. >> they are trying to push the door open, they won't leave. >> are you sure you don't know who these people are? >> i do not know who they ar
to war with each other. the state department, the pentagon and the cia and the question who is responsible for what happened that night in libya for preventing and failing to prevent what happened. and the report is that general petraeus wanted to get out there aggressively in defense of the cia and ultimately did by release that time line and the intel officials were not too happy with petraeus and the suggestion is suddenly when they became unhappy about what he started to do on libya to defend the cia, suddenly his affair was a deal breaker. suddenly that went up to the upper etch lons and clapper told him he needed to resign and petraeus wanted to keep his job but did what his boss told him to do which was resign. does that make sense to you? is that feasible? >> you are not the on person saying it. megyn: i'm not saying it at all. the "wall street journal" is saying it. >> charles krauthammer made a similar statement. maybe the thing that was being held as the sword of damocles was the preknowledge of this. i don't know. that's all speculation. here is the point i was t
dollars, for instance, out of the pentagon budget, when tax rates automatically go up for just about every single american. but the devil will be in the details. there isn't a lot of time to get a deal done. we'll continue to monitor that for you here on fox and let you know how it proceeds. jenna: more breaking news now. new reports suggest there are two people missing in the oil platform fire we told you about at the beginning of our show. this is just breaking. we have a coast guard captain on the phone. captain, what can you tell us about the fire. >> good morning. about 9:00 this morning the coast guard received a report on a platform about 20 miles south of grand isle, louisiana. the report we had 28 people were onboard. after the fire occurred commercial helicopters evacuated individuals on the platform to a nearby platform. we're still working on full accountability for the people that were there. jenna: we have heard reports of four being flown to the hospital and two being missing or as you know, when it comes up in reports two being dead. can you confirm any of that for us? >> f
and the key language was changed. whether it was the white house or the pentagon. or the national security council, someone in the administration changed those talking points. only the administration can tell that. the white house said they didn't do it. so who did? the defense department or justice department? national subject council? why don't they admit who did id it? that is the question. to blame it on petraeus and clapper is wrong. whatever petraeus and clapper did, that was changed by the administration. not by petraeus and clapper. number one. the only answer is the public to demand when the administration did it, who told them do it and as far as rice is concerned, no reason she is confined to talking points. >> do you think that she, as you mention, that she had the span of information and was made sacrificial lamb? she was given talking point and didn't tell her the whole story and sent around why the u.n. ambassador was doing the sunday shows? do you think there is a level of intelligence? does she have an opportunity to know more? >> susan rice has great ability. i've known h
would have been as large if the pentagon had done what it was supposed to do. >> gretchen: all right. i also want to get your thoughts on the protocol that jay carney, the spokesperson for president obama, has been talking about now in light of the petraeus situation and what the protocol of the f.b.i. was as to when they were supposed to tell the president about this. what is the protocol, in your mind, and is that a good excuse for not telling president obama about petraeus and do you buy it? >> no, i don't buy it. what they said is the f.b.i. had protocol not to inform the white house of a criminal investigation unless there is a security investigation. well, this clearly was a security investigation because the c.i.a. director was one, subject to blackmail because of this affair, and also there were questions about whether he had given classified information to his mistress. so obviously the f.b.i. protocols would not apply. in any event, the attorney general was told about this this past summer. the f.b.i. protocols don't apply to him. he had an obligation to tell the president tha
revealed. national security correspondent jennifer griffin is live at the pentagon with more on this, including a fox news exclusive. >> or well, we've been looking at a speech that paula broadwell gave on october 26th in denver, colorado, and in that speech she raises some serious questions that some are wondering whether she may have revealed details that she knew about the benghazi investigations, details that broadwell may have, in fact, obtained from her relationship with cia director david petraeus. at this speech at her alma mater in denver on october 26th, the same day as fox news reported by the way that requests from the ci ark annex were -- cia annex were denied, she said this: >> the cia annex had actually, had taken a couple of libyan militia members prisoners, and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get the prisoners back, so that's still being vetted. >> reporter: being vetted by whom, the cia? that wasn't in any of the official cia timelines. the implication is that the attack on the u.s. consulate was, n. a strike against the cia opera
worked at the pentagon and there's a game called, fly it up the flagpole and see if anybody salutes. nobody is saluting at the nomination of susan rice, now, why? why don't i think they're going to do it. and confirmation hearings, what's going to happen? they're going to ask about benghazi, who changed those talking points? why did you have that fairy tale about a demonstration and a youtube video. the last thing the administration wants. they don't want an enemy, they'll put her name forward, not going to be support. withdraw it, give her another job, probably one that doesn't need senate confirmation. >> dave: if she's your pick, why do you put her out there. the president didn't believe everything in the talking points, i can't imagine he believed that. let me read you a quote about susan rice, she's ill-equipped to be the nation's top and she's managed to make an impressive array of enemies, that's from a liberal columnist, a very far left columnist, at washington post, and she has enemies on both sides of the aisle. >> yeah, and put her through a senate confirmation hearing an
